Global Competitions that Change the World

Two weeks ago our team gathered in Austin, Texas for the annual SXSW conference. A few of us were speaking, a few of us live there, and a few of us came for a Ushahidi design team hit team meeting. Altogether we had nine team members in Austin at different times throughout the week.

How Ushahidi helped OpenROV build a digital field journal

We blogged about OpenExplorer in November last year, describing how we used it to track our Nile adventure. We thought it would be interesting to go into more detail about what exactly this tool is and how our Solutions Team was engaged to build it.

Ushahidi 2.7.4 – Bug Fix Release

We are excited to announce yet another bug fix release of the Ushahidi platform dubbed 2.7.4. We knocked out a couple of bugs with this release, including password validation errors, runtime errors in settings and when submitting reports, cached theme settings issues, 2MB file upload limit and much more.

Negotiating for Change

This week I am leading a four-part seminar on interest-based negotiation skills at the iHub. The short course is open to Ushahidi team members, m:lab incubatees, and the general iHub community. It builds off of two talks I gave earlier in the summer for the Pivot East and Tech4Africa conferences, but provides much more time for dialogue and a full-blown negotiation simulation.
